Was Pencil seriously a suggested map? That's so stupid I can't even believe it's true.

Sadly the images have been removed, but all of the Great Moments elements are pulled from the originals so at least the pencil itself has been saved. The second post in that thread says it all. Actually I just read the entire thread, and... :lol:

Dear cairnswk,

I have read your latest post with due diligence, and noted that you are the third member of the fine foundry to point out how humorous Klobber's thread was. But while I do not like to repeat myself, I find that I must point out the topic to which we have moved on. You will note from reading my post above regarding other funny moments in the Foundry, as well as by reading the posts that follow, there have been other map threads that also warrant our attention. The pencil, for example, was a fine bit of Foundry lunacy, as was the Plasagna/Sperm Donation Room map.

Please refrain from making any more comments about the Honeycomb map. As I have said, I don't like to repeat myself, and I would not like to take the time to bring you back to the topic at hand. After all, I don't like to repeat myself.

Thank you very much.

I still think the Rubix cube map would've been a winner...

Looked up the Honeycomb map. Interesting to see the success of my advice.

That was my first map idea I posted. Andy and everyone else pretty much said it sucked. So I made King of the Mountains instead.

I'd like to see this Rubix Cube, maybe now with Conquer 4, and the Poker map there might be a bit more enthusiasm from the masses for this map, im trying to come up with an idea for another 'old favorite'
